"Phase transitions and non-equilibrium behavior in biological systems" The mechanics of cells and tissues is largely governed by scaffolds of filamentous proteins such as collagen. Evidence is emerging that such structures can exhibit rich mechanical phase behavior. A classic example of a... Read More »

"Additive Manufacturing and Architected Materials" Material properties are governed by the chemical composition and spatial arrangement of constituent elements at multiple length scales. This fundamentally limits material properties with respect to each other creating trade-offs when selecting... Read More »
